Polar Bear Plunge 2024

Camp Fitch Needs You, Polar Bear Plunge 2024.

Whether you plunge in the ocean, your local lake or pool, do the Ice Bucket Challenge, or plunge in Lake Erie at Camp Fitch on Saturday, March 9, you can truly Polar Bear Anywhere!

It is time to register for Polar Bear, as the polar bear committee is working hard to plan a safe and fun polar bear plunge this year with three “invigorating” options that will empower YOU to impact the life of a child, forever: 

  • In-Person Plunge: at Camp Fitch on Saturday, March 9th with 100+ other plungers who get cheered on by the much warmer crowd! 
  • Remote Plunge: A pool or ocean? A slip and slide? A bucket of ice? An Alaskan glacier? Water and Ice will suffice!
  • Fireside Fundraiser: Hate the cold and a land lover? No problem, register to raise money from the comforts of your cozy den.
Here’s where we need your help!
